Simplicity Can be Sexy

The phrase significant other irks me in a weird way. It is a formal expression of someone you love. You don’t refer to your mom as the birth giver do you?

If you are in need of a somewhat quick and easy dessert to indulge your lover with this Valentines day, then I would highly recommend chocolate covered strawberries. It is a classic for this occasion for a reason. Although this recipe will only take around 20 minute of your time, please be sure to give yourself at least 2 hours to allow your melted chocolate to cool and harden.

Chocolate? That doesn’t Sound like Peanut Butter

After last week’s super bowl party, there was a plethora of beer cans in the fridge. After passing through some Stone Rippers shoving aside some Rogue ales, I stumbled upon one remaining Peanut Butter Stout from Belching Beaver. Now, you know that I have an unheard of bias towards this milk stout and it is the one beer with the most recipes available on this site. What I am trying to say is don’t have this beer around me or I will bake with it.

Knowing that Valentines day is right around the corner, I could only think of strawberries dipped in chocolate and peanut butter. Sure chocolate alone is great, but why not ride that peanut butter train as far as possible.

Although I provided a recipe, it should be noted that these ingredients aren’t exact. In fact, I didn’t honestly measure everything so my notes are simply an estimate. Instead of using a little be of cream or milk for smoothness, we of course will use our favorite stout.

For minimal amount of effort, this will provide your loved with maximum peanut butter flavors.

    I am a developer, cooking fanatic, and craft beer lover. However, lacking in baking skills, I decided to try making beer bread. Baking Brew is dedicated to cooking and baking with one main ingredient in mind. Craft Beer!

    Peanut Butter Milk Stout

    Our Peanut Butter Milk Stout is simply irresistible. It’s like dark chocolate Reese’s in a glass! Rolled oats and Lactose add to the creamy body of this beer while heavenly aromas of roasted buttery peanuts and chocolate greet you with every sip. Try this out with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a real treat!
